Saturday, February 23, 2019 -  Camp Helen Monthly Species Count. Meet us at the Camp Helen front gate at 6:00 am sharp. Although we typically finish birding about noon, you can spend as much or as little time as you like. We sometimes divide our group to cover the north side of the park as well as the coastal areas. We appreciate any amount of time given to help document our avian friends. Bring binoculars, scope [if you have one], water and snacks, hat and sunscreen. If you would like to participate, please contact Emily Ellis at
